Survival
Not quite
Unfortunately this project was not successful.

To survive the coronavirus pandemic and give my business the start it deserves with a view to offering employment opportunities as we grow.

by Laura Barr in Maybole, Scotland, United Kingdom

I began buying the materials to make my hair accessories and nappy cakes, offer party Supplies and Helium Balloon Delivery a couple of months ago. I saved up and bought supplies each month in an attempt to turn a hobby into a business to support myself and my two children. Unfortunately as I only began trading one month before the Coronavirus hit the UK I am one of the 5% that fall into the cracks and I am not eligible for the government grants to assist the self employed through this horrendous period. Undoubtedly I am deemed to fail before I even get started because understandably people are only worried about stocking up on essential food supplies during this time. I fear that due to the fact I'm not eligible for any government support, it's game over for me. If you are in the position to help, you have no idea how much of a godsend you will be, if you cannot help, don't worry and thank you for taking the time to read my story... Laura x
